My interest in things that fly led me to a rewarding aerospace profession. I am fortunate to share my enthusiasm with students and researchers at the C-AeroLab at QUB. Here we develop methods to analyze and design the next generations of aerospace vehicles. Examples of the worked developed at the lab. can be found in these pages, for further information please do not hesitate in contacting us.


Research Statement

My research focuses on computational methods for aerodynamic and aeroelastic analysis and design. Our primary research objective is to develop and advance high-fidelity methods for the analysis and design of aerospace vehicles.


Research Interests:

  • Aeroelasticity

  • CFD

  • Uncertainty Quantification

  • Optimisation
